Copy of LCS Week 5 Preview: A classic Showmatch Headlines The Week

by Mike Stubbs

With the LEC taking a mid split break for a week, the LCS is the only major League of Legends action taking place this week in the west, and to give you some extra content to watch Riot Games has organized a special show match. 

The biggest clash this week in the LCS is the match between top team Cloud9 and joint second place team TSM. 

The two organizations are two of the biggest in the LCS and have a rivalry that stretches back years. 

So to celebrate the big clash Riot Games has organized a classic show match between TSM and Cloud9 that will take place on Friday, July 10th, before the real match in the LCS proper takes place the next day. 

The show match will feature teams made up of iconic players who previously played for either Cloud9 or TSM, and while rosters are yet to be confirmed you can be sure that some of the biggest names in LCS history will be playing. 

Going back to the LCS proper, other interesting matches include a bottom of the table clash between Digitas and Immortals, and a match between Counter Logic Gaming and Evil Geniuses, two teams who will be looking to make playoffs come the end of the split. 

In fact, CLG has a pretty tough week, facing third-place EG and second place Team Liquid. 

If they can come out of this week with two wins then they will be in a very favourable position heading into the later stage of the split, still having to face most of the teams below them in the competition. 

As ever all of the action will be shown on the LCS Twitch Channel, including the special Cloud9 vs TSM show match that really is a must-watch for any LCS fans who pine for the players of yesteryear.
